A Day Out To Remember

by Samantha G. Faulkner

Today we're going to the zoo.
I'm psyched, I'm zinged, I'm Scooby Doo.

Poem of the Week for: 06/19/2018 - 06/25/2018

Now that Father's Day and Mother's Day are over until next year, it's time to focus on Children's Day, every single day of the year when we give our children our unconditional love no matter what they do. 

In this week's poem, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, beautifully describes his love for his children from the depths of his heart, in language from the mid 1800's, but in sentiments that are timeless.

Between the dark and the daylight,
When the night is beginning to lower,
Comes a pause in the day's occupations,
That is known as the Children's Hour.
